VILLAGE CHECKS

Amid grave concerns expressed by various DCs on several Covid-infected people coming in from outside the state in recent days, Punjab CM Captain Amarinder Singh on Thursday ordered villagelevel quarantine in designated buildings, while issuing strict instructions for compulsory institutional quarantine, for both positive and negative cases, of all those coming from other states. The CM made it clear that no one coming from outside should be allowed to go home without completing the 21-day quarantine period, since symptoms generally show up after some time.

Where possible, those found positive and negative should be segregated in different buildings altogether, he suggested, as a measure to check the further spread of the pandemic. Ruling out any relaxation at the borders, which continue to remain strictly sealed, he said there was no question of allowing any buses to enter Punjab without permit from the respective states.
